  1. my apologies... but who is chuckee?
  2. Great job on the GL 62. I was just thinking the other day that it was odd that we had not seen a newly discovered DCU variant since January... and all of a sudden this one pops up. I wonder if any others will be found soon
  3. You would have to check it out on ebay and judge condition for yourself.
  4. uh oh... another rookie mistake on my part. Thanks for clueing me in. Sorry about that!
  5. I bought those three 2-packs you see in posting above. I'm going to sell the Spare 499 pack starting tonight on ebay. If someone is willing to offer one hundred bucks for it as firends/family sale, I would be willing to cancel the auction.
  6. Here is a strawman list of DC Universe logo variants that have two versions: Batman Legend of the Dark Knight 63 DCU with “Collector’s Pack First Printing” in the indicia (others unmarked) Detective 674 DCU with “Collector’s Pack First Printing” in the indicia (others unmarked) Detective 690 stickered DCU (others have the DC Universe symbol printed on the cover) Flash 96 DCU with “Second printing” in the indicia (others unmarked and have different ads) Green Lantern 51 DCU with roman number II on the front cover (others first print) Green Lantern 59 stickered DCU (others have the DC Universe symbol printed on the cover) Superman 104 stickered DCU (others have the DC Universe symbol printed on the cover) Superman Man of Steel 30 DCU with “Collector’s Pack First Printing” in the indicia (others unmarked) Superman Man of Steel 42 stickered DCU (others have the DC Universe symbol printed on the cover) Superman Man of Steel Annual 3 DCU with “Second printing” in the indicia (others unmarked)
  7. agreed... it looks like the best condition we have seen yet. Mine was a FN+ at best.
  8. thanks. Yes, it is nice to see the Superman and Batman 2nd print newsstands together. I should do some closeup looks at them to see if there's any clues about when they were made.
  9. I've opened quite a few 20-packs bricks and so have some friends of mine in the name of research. In general, they contain comic books with the same cover date. Every once in awhile there would be some in the pack from the prior or following month.
  10. The DC Universe variant of SM MOS 20 is among the very hardest to find... yet alone in a sealed pack. Congrats!
  11. Up until about 5 years ago Batman 457 2nd print newsstand was thought to have been a myth (some had theorized that the only known image was photo-shopped). Since then, 25+ copies of the Batman 457 2nd print have now surfaced. The prices on ebay seem to be well above $1K, and more like $2K for higher grade. The insatiable demand and prices are very surprising to me. I think that goes to show you how die-hard the Batman variant collectors are. On the other hand, only 2 copies of the Superman 50 2nd print newsstand have surfaced. I believe there should be just as many Superman 50's out there, but I don't think there is anywhere near the same interest in finding them as the Batman's.
  12. I would gladly pay $50 for any of these in VF or better (but contact me please if you have a lower grade of any of these). I always pay immediately. Batman New 52 #10 Newsstand Superman New 52 #8 Newsstand (ever since they were differentiated back in 1980, this is the only newsstand issue among the titles of Batman, Detective, Superman and Action Comics that I've never seen) Action Comics 252 Millennium Edition Newsstand issue Detective Comics 803, 813 Adventures of Superman 553
  13. Wow... what did the pack cost you? That one one is among the rarest of the rare.
